I Wish That I Had Duck Feet is a children's book written by Dr. Seuss and first published in 1965. "Theo. LeSieg" was a pen name of Theodor Geisel, who is more commonly known as Dr. Seuss. The story concerns a boy who wishes that he could have many different animal and mechanical body parts, finding fantastic uses for each. After he lists all the great things he can do with his new body part, he says why it would be problematic. At the end, he decides that he is happiest being himself.
